    Common ft. Kanye West - "The Food"

    What it makes you nostalgic about: Growing up in Chicago, breaking bread with thieves and pastors

    Common rapping about life in Chicago over a track produced by and featuring Kanye West, utilizing samples from both Sam Cooke and The Chi-lites. This is some Chicago-ass shit. Although the track never received much attention, it remains a bright moment in both Chicago rappers' careers, with Common in top form as a lyricist and Kanye at the peak of his production game in the “soul-sample era” of his career.
